Fantastic post today by Arcadian Lighting on Pink Floors!

I know it sounds oh-so-girly, but if you do it right and do it well, you can incorporate a lil' bit of pink and still keep your man card

+Chrissa King it was a valiant effort... my dignity agrees as well, but is still threatening an expensive hotel vacation if I even think about that kind of decor ;)

Some things are just so obvious they allude me.
Christy Sandhoff originally shared:
 
Am I the only person who hasn't heard of "cooler corn"?

As an obsessive food nerd, you'd expect that I would have
at least heard of it, but over the weekend I was blindsided
by the simple genius of this method for cooking loads of
corn on the cob (which is still in season, no matter that
summer already seems like a sad memory) perfectly.

I was hepped to it while visiting my family in Maine. Short
story: We like corn on the cob. And with eight adults at
the table, that means a couple of dozen ears. We would
have used the lobster pot to cook them all, but the lobster
pot was busy steaming lobster. (And please don't spell it
"lobstah". It's not funny.) Then my sister, a capable Maine
cook with years of camping experience says "let's do cooler
corn!" Before I can ask "what the hell is cooler corn?" a
Coleman cooler appears from the garage, is wiped clean,
then filled with the shucked ears. Next, two kettles-full of
boiling water are poured over the corn and the top closed.

Then nothing.

When we sat down to dinner 30 minutes later and opened it,
the corn was perfectly cooked. My mind was blown. And I'm
told that the corn will remain at the perfect level of doneness
for a couple of hours.

Turns out, Cooler Corn is pretty well known among the
outdoorsy set (I found a handful of mentions on various
camping websites). But for those of us who avoid tents as
much as possible, it's perfect for large barbecues and way
less of mess than grilling. In fact, I may even buy another
cooler just so I'm ready for next summer. Now that I'm in
the know.

I think “It’s Alright, but There’s A Lot of Wrong” would be more fitting. I should have taken it as a bad omen when the episode opened with Luke Wheeler. Immediately following, there’s some saliva ...

Finally.

Most of you don't know, but i have this budding little company of awesome called "The Design Junkie". I photograph stuff, I refinish things, I sell both of these...but mostly?

I just blog about Interior Design, houses that I want, and what I do to make my own home come as close as I can to what I want, as afford-ably as possible.

I do online consultations, mock ups and e-advice.
Good design is like any addiction, it consumes you until you are utterly obsessed with it. I am the Design Junkie, and I am obsessed with great design.

Yeah, imagine that, like stepping in a time machine. I used to have a massive amount of people commenting on every short story I posted. That would be nice again. If I'm gonna post it, share it, would be nice to have readers/commenters again. Yo! Google plus.

Once upon a time, this guy, +Tom Anderson, created this place for you to meet perfect strangers new people and stalk the daylights out of them get to know them. At some point you realize your new friends can write shit. In fact, some of this shit your new friends are writing isn't even shit at all, it is actually...interesting. Heartfelt. Hilarious. You might even realize that some of these friends aren't even just writing, but are writers. And artists. And Comedians.

There is even a rating system. If you would like to do more than just say, "Wow, Joe, I'm so sorry that you brought that pretty girl home Sunday night and couldn't even seal the deal. However, your story was well worth your humiliation. In appreciation I give you two Kudos". Because everyone knows that leaving someone only one Kudo is a dick move. It totally says, "Meh, I don't want to be a total tool, but I wasted a good 3.2 minutes of my life that I'll never get back reading your drivel so here, have a Kudo".

Here you have these new friends, you read about their lives, their tribulations, embarrassing dating horror stories, you give them more than one Kudo and you get to really know them. You care about their life and you think about how lucky you are that you even found each other. Sometime after that you fly to see them, they fly to see you and before you know it you and all of these friends are now living on Facebook talking about how much you all miss Myspace and the stupid Kudos.

Then one day you and all of these Myspace friends write a book and you name it Uno Kudo in celebration of all those lonely Kudos left by all the dicks that you left back on Myspace. And then it makes Amazon's Literature Best Seller List.


And you are happy.

And you want to tell everyone that they should buy your book.

The End.
